International Journal of Higher Education Pedagogies <p>International Journal of Higher Education Pedagogies (IJHEP) is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal publishing a wide range of research works in the field of teaching and learning methods within higher education. IJHEP publishes original research on the method and practice of higher education teaching as a broad concept. We publish high-quality theoretically grounded, empirical studies addressing the main functions of higher education and the dynamic role of the university.<br />Higher Education Pedagogies is an essential reference for those who wish to stay tuned with the latest findings and developments in the higher education context.</p> en-US ( ) ( ) Sat, 29 Apr 2023 06:20:07 +0000 OJS 60 Promoting Shared Academic Paths Through University Alliances: A Survey for The Investigation of Teachers’ Training Needs <p>This paper gives an overview on the history of one of the most impacting strategy to promote teachers’ training in higher education, Faculty Development, worldwide and on the reality of European universities inside the alliances as a strategy to promote the connection among people and institutions belonging to common contexts. For long time the European Union gave many guidelines on the features these realities should put into practice. In this contribution we will provide a focus on one specific consortium called UNITA Universitas Montium, which is dealing with these directions especially focusing on the promotion of learning innovation through new strategies related to teachers’ training inside the different institutions that are part of the alliance. In this regard, it has been created and implemented a survey to understand teachers’ needs and interests on many training topics, that will be deepened through the organization of focus groups’ sessions. These steps will represent the starting point to give birth to more and more ad hoc and engaging training projects and consequently develop a common and shared course of action in the learning field.</p> Nicole Messi Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Higher Education Pedagogies Sat, 29 Apr 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Understanding the Master’s Degree Research Supervision at Community Campuses of Nepal <p>Research supervision has become increasingly demanding for graduate students towards the successful completion of their research. However, there are limited studies on how supervisors supervise the research students and what their experiences are in the context of Nepalese higher education. This phenomenological qualitative study explores the Master’s degree research supervisors’ perceptions and their lived experiences on supervision of Master’s thesis. Thematically analysing the data collected from six purposively sampled supervisors of three public campuses of Nepal, this paper reports the findings that research supervision practices in community campuses of Nepal lack sociocultural pedagogic practice for developing research skills in the students. Furthermore, it examines the supervisors’ roles, supervisor-student relationship, and the challenges the supervisors faced during research supervision. In this paper, I argue that the research supervisory process in Nepal needs to be socioculturally situated for producing independent researchers.</p> Gobinda Puri Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Higher Education Pedagogies Sat, 29 Apr 2023 00:00:00 +0000 A Reflective Study Investigating Looping in Higher Education as a Pedagogical Methodology Model <p>Looping, an educational pedagogical approach in which student groups are taught by the same teacher in successive years, has long been implemented in K-12 schools to various degrees of success. However, little research of its occurrence in higher education settings exists. To address the lack of professional scholarship of looping in colleges and universities, this reflective study examines looping as a pedagogical methodology in teacher education courses at the undergraduate level. Having emerged from several years of the author’s personal looping implementation at both middle school and collegiate levels, this reflective research study seeks to examine how looping in higher education differs from more traditional course delivery models. Grounded in the ecological framework of reflection and reflective methodology, the study looks at looping and proposes ideas for further areas of investigation.</p> Melissa Comer Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Higher Education Pedagogies Sat, 29 Apr 2023 00:00:00 +0000
